    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at REAL D full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good & the location is great.

    Cons

    HR is not there for employees. It's very much a good ol' boys club where relationships and egos matter. They expect you to work long hours and do the job of 2-3 people as a way to compensate for people laid off. High priced consultants is the norm & they hire a lot of them. The internal IT department lacks the execution of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Egos have gone unchecked for too long and upper & middle management needs to get on the same level as staff.

    Put into place a company-wide policy that prevents hiring high priced consultants.

    The IT department should not be afraid to adopt/implement industry standards instead of reinventing the wheel on outsourcing projects to save face.

    Pros

    Cool, cutting-edge technology. Great benefits. Fun environment. Small company environment that encourages new ideas and innovation.

    Cons

    Management tends to make knee-jerk reactions that drastically change the direction and scope of projects. This adds unnecessary stress to the teams.

    I worked at REAL D full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    An exciting place to work; the Operations and Engineering teams are top notch; fun stuff working with 3D technology! Good pay, good benefits; upper management wants RealD to be a top 100 best companies to work for in the US. Very lofty goal indeed but the could make it happen.

    Cons

    Each employee needs to take control of their work/life balance, cuz the company wont do that for you. I made that mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forthcoming with your plans with layoffs. It will help those impacted to be better prepared if/when that event DOES take place.
